Jonathan Art Direction: What’s this? I told you the giant ant needs to be wearing a top hat. We’ll have to fix it with typography.

Tag Wizard Comments: Jonathan also helpfully forwards the note on the copyright page: ‘The Large Ant’ originally published as ‘The Big Ant’

Published 1961

We’ve got submitted Spock covers coming out our pointy ears so it’s a good time to toss them all together into a Mr. Spock Megapost! Credit where credit is due but there are some unknown artists and publishers in this mix.

Good Show Sir Comments:

1. Yes we are both threatened by the giant ants. Why do you persist in yelling Me Too?

2. I wish to be now known as Father Spock.

3. “Airing … grievances … lot of problems … you people … gonna hear it …”

4. Next time let’s not get our publicity shots posing in the Sears Portrait Studio.

5. Sorry. I don’t know what happened. I’ve never lost my Vulcan Death Grip before.

A classic 70's date... knife-fight some monsters, then off to the roller disco!Click for full image

Frank Comments: This is clearly of the 1970s, a fantasy warrior knife-fighting pose, but in disco dress, with zodiac symbols in the background. And big bugs! Seriously, I looked at it to see if it was an update of “The Radio Man” for the Disco Years. It wasn’t.

I’m thinking book covers are normally so unrealistic. They have things that are so unbelievable it would make your mother cry. Not us! I propose, a photographic quality drawing of a military man placing his shined boot on the head of his latest kill: a giant ant insect alien creature. It will be just like they are back in the great war…. with aliens…
